NO WHISK NO GLORY!

Hi, I'm Steph and I officially started Baked by Steph back in Jan 2019.

After years of working in fashion and web design I was itching for a new way to use my creative skills. Enter baking.

It all started out as an after-work hobby back in 2018 which quickly turned into an obsession with all things baked. I spent my days working at a web design agency while honing my baking and decorating skills by night (along with developing a pretty serious coffee addiction!). Everything I saw had to be turned into a cookie. Why, you ask? I honestly have no idea! But it became my absolute passion.

SIDE HUSTLE TO MAIN HUSTLE

What began as treats for friends soon became treats for friends of friends, until finally, what had started as a hobby snowballed into a full-time job. At the end of 2018 I finally bit the bullet and officially traded in websites and project management for kitchen scales and cookie dough. And thus Baked by Steph was born!

HANDMADE IN EAST LONDON

In the beginning it was just little old me baking up a storm (and creating a total mess) from my tiny Camden flat with an oven that could fit a maximum of 20 cookies at a time. Soon I outgrew my tiny home kitchen, put on my big girl pants and found myself a totally grown-up commercial bakery in East London.

Two years, one pandemic and one move later, East London remains our home. Along the way I've welcomed 15 baking, creative and digital superstars on board my team to help make my dream of delivering joy to doorsteps across the UK a reality. ❤️
